ans should be option (d)  .....tomorrow should be placed by the next day
+2

I requested that he should give the driving test today instead of tomorrow.

Should and be are used together only when the modal use is : Expectation

For example: Ramesh should be  in New Delhi by 30th of November. (The speaker is expecting that ramesh will reach New Delhi on or before 30th of November).

For more clarity visit: http://www.englishpage.com/modals/should.html

Also I checked the official answer key so the ANSWER is option B only.

option B is correct  because “Should” – not to be used in a request
